Formed by Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars, we were first introduced to Silk Sonic in March 2021 and they have truly been living in our heads rent-free ever since. With hit singles like ‘Leave The Door Open’ and ‘Smoking Out The Window,’ it’s incredibly hard not to be a huge Silk Sonic stan. So, when we saw that they were back in the R&B charts with ‘After Last Night,’ you can imagine how hyped we were!
‘After Last Night’ blends Silk Sonic’s classic funky R&B sound with a more sensual vibe that is both addictive and charming. This sensuality is reminiscent of Bruno’s individual discography and songs such as ‘Versace On The Floor’ or ‘That’s What I Like.’ The single features bassist Thundercat and funk artist Bootsy, with Bootsy contributing vocals throughout. The song charted at the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart back in July and has since climbed back up to the number one spot across national R&B stations. This also marks Thundercat and Bootsy’s first number-one spot at R&B radio outlets.
‘After Last Night’ is the fourth Silk Sonic single to top the charts, joining viral hits ‘Smoking Out The Window’ and ‘Leave The Door Open’ as well as ‘Skate’ and their most recent release, ‘Love’s Train.’ These singles come from their iconic debut album An Evening With Silk Sonic. This R&B album was easily one of our favorite releases of last year and we seriously can’t wait to get more new music from them!
Silk Sonic is the genius pairing of two of THP’s all-time favorite artists, Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars. The two are able to perfectly blend together their individual styles to create a flawless discography that simply has no skips. Since forming and releasing their new album, Silk Sonic has received four GRAMMY awards, most notably for Record of the Year and Song of the Year with ‘Leave The Door Open.’ The pair recently wrapped up their unmissable Las Vegas residency at the Park MGM hotel and we really hope that they announce some more tour dates soon so that everyone can enjoy the iconic duo that is Silk Sonic.
